Every vocation is an exodus from self

National Vocations Awareness Week (03 – 10 August 2014)

Women reflecting about her life

The theme for this year is from Pope Francis’ Letter for World Day of Prayer for Vocations: “Every vocation is an exodus from self … it leads us on a journey of Adoration of the Lord … and service to him in our brothers and sisters.”

This is a reminder to all of us that all vocations require sacrifice and service. Whether married, consecrated life, priesthood or apostolic celibacy – we are all called to serve God and our neighbour.

Please pray that many young people may hear the Lord’s call to serve, particularly in priesthood and religious life.
